Meet the Speaker

Karen Martin has worked on both sides of the table when it comes to fundraising: as a grants officer for a family foundation and as a volunteer philanthropist for an Impact Fund; and also as a grant writer, media relations coordinator, social media coordinator, and individual fundraiser for various nonprofits.

She advises nonprofit executives, managers and volunteers on successful strategies needed to help others understand what you do, why your work is so important, and how they can support your efforts.
